Job: To hold small parts and keep them from getting lost or knocked off your bench.
Thumps Up: The Magnetic Parts Bowls is a great addition to any tool box. It’s inexpensive and will pay for itself the first time it prevents you from losing a small (but vital) part. Whether you are overhauling a hub, a shifter, or just need a place to set some screws, you can’t go wrong with this bowl.
Thumbs Down: Is there a downside to this parts bowl? No, unless you just happen to hate the color blue.
Tool Tip: If your bench, tool box, or repair stand is metal, stick this bowl on the side (or under it) so that it’s always handy.
Last Word: If you want to prevent that embarrassing trip to your local shop after you lose a ball bearing or small screw, then you need this bowl.
Info: Retails for $7.
